Various types of materials such as films, fluids, oils and solids


  • Biological & biomedical materials - materials evolving from biological structures
  • Composite materials - often called simply composites, materials composed of two or more constituent materials with significantly different characteristics which maintain their distinctiveness when combined
  • Crystalline materials - solid materials whose constituent atoms are arranged in an orderly and repeating pattern in three dimensions
  • Films - thin chemical coverings applied to a material's surface
  • Fluids - substances that continually deform under applied pressure, composing both liquids and gases
  • Metamaterials - artificial materials engineered to have properties that may not be found in nature, often used in producing optic materials
  • Oils - a substance that is liquid at normal temperatures but does not mix with water
  • Photoconducting materials - materials that become more electrically conductive due to the absorption of electromagnetic radiation
  • Polymers - a large molecule composed of repeating structural units
  • Resins - the hydrocarbon secretion of some plants, usually conifers, which can produce varnishes, adhesives and other products
